Beach Lover.  Art Admirer.  Improv Addict.

Hi! My name is Alya and I'm generally a 'happy-go-lucky' person -
thanks to my astrological sign: Libra.

 

True to the Libran's archetype - I'm idealistic and think life should be fair.

(Go ahead. Laugh. Roll your eyes. Snort.

It's okay, I do...usually loudly and on first dates.)

I've had the calling to be an actor since I was in second grade. I love being on set and on stage.

I especially love being involved in a production that affects a person's life in a positive way.

 

One of my goals is to be in a production where my character makes the audience laugh so hard,

their stomach hurts and then cry so hard, their nose runs. (not necessarily in that order.)

 

I was a member (and producer) of "FreeFall International" Improv troupe -

an international group of actors and creators, established and performed during the pandemic:

live, unscripted shows on zoom for people all around the world to connect and have fun together.

We entertained our audiences with joy, tears and/or laughter, by recognizing our shared humanity.

 

I've worked on network television shows, been cast in numerous independent films,

corporate industrials and principal roles in commercials.

I am consistently working on my craft with a variety of acting coaches, currently with Jo Kelly.

I'm also working on booking a guest-star role on a comedy series, ideally with Taika Waititi!!
